Timer Switch with two load wires?
I have purchased a switch that has a timer built which will allow my bathroom fan to run for 30 minutes and then turn off.
My handyman guy wasn't able to get it to work - it worked with turning on the light, and it worked with turning on the fan, but when he combined the light & fan wires and attached them the light flickered badly. He thinks the switch cannot handle two separate load wires.
So, I'm trying to figure out is it possible to have 1 timer type switch that can handle two load wires? I have three wires in my box - 1 power wire, 1 load wire from light, and 1 load wire from fan.
Is there a timer switch that has the ability to wire two separate load wires? If so, what would it be called?
I do not want to schedule another visit until I know if I have the right timers. It may be that I need to add another separate switch, but then I have lost control of making sure when they turn on the shower light the fan comes on too!
